仲尼Zhongni said,
'But you must try and search the matter out.
Of all causes for sorrow there is none so great as the death of the mind
- the death of man's (body) is only next to it.
西The sun comes forth in the east, and sets in the extreme west
- all things have their position determined by these two points.
All that have eyes and feet
wait for this (sun), and then proceed to do what they have to do.
When this comes forth, they appear in their places;
when it sets, they disappear.
It is so with all things.
They have that for which they wait, and (on its arrival) they die;
they have that for which they wait, and then (again) they live.
When once I receive my frame thus completed,
I remain unchanged, awaiting the consummation of my course.
I move as acted on by things,
day and night without cessation,
and I do not know when I will come to an end.
Clearly I am here a completed frame,
and even one who (fancies that he) knows what is appointed cannot determine it beforehand.
I am in this way daily passing on,
but all day long I am communicating my views to you; and now, as we are shoulder to shoulder you fail (to understand me)
- is it not matter for lamentation?
You are able in a measure to set forth what I more clearly set forth;
but that is passed away,
and you look for it, as if it were still existing,
just as if you were looking for a horse in the now empty place where it was formerly exhibited for sale.
You have very much forgotten my service to you, and I have very much forgotten wherein I served you.
But nevertheless why should you account this such an evil?
What you forget is but my old self; that which cannot be forgotten remains with me.
